Adult Education meets Sunday morning (“in-person” and via livestream) at 11am.
Current Series: ROOM TO GROW
Beginning with God’s command to Adam, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth,” and by the nature of creation, growth is a given. We not only grow from childhood to adulthood, but we purposefully grow intellectually at home, at school, at work and for fun. We grow spiritually: “Be born again.” Psychologists, counselors and self-help books coach us to improve (grow) our personalities. We try to grow our incomes, our economy and our experiences. In political issues, we contrast growing government with growing freedom.
This fall adult Sunday school will address growth in a variety of circumstances that may be similar to our own, or analogs to the situations in which we or others live or have to pass through. We seek the ultimate growth: “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.***By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be my disciples.” (John 15:5, 8)
